There was some speculation as to why Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor were not heard saying too much about ‘Padmavati’. The former has said he’s fully supportive of filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali but he’s been asked not to address the media. In a similar fashion, it’s now being said that the actor has also been asked to keep fans at bay.
“He loves his fans and makes sure that he even pushes his security guards behind to allow fans close to him. But one does not know who is going to come near him these days — anyone may try to harm him in the event of the Padmavati controversy, since there are already threats issued to the maker of the film, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Deepika Padukone. Ranveer does not like the idea of keeping fans at bay, but he will have to do that for the next few days till the Padmavati issue is solved properly,” said a source close to Singh, according to Asian Age.
Security around the cast and crew has been upped due to the threats they have recently received. The film has been postponed indefinitely due to the unrest.
